After enjoying a coffee in either Kaikohe or Kawakawa you can decide how hard you want to work to burn off that chocolate slice.   Kaikohe to Kawakawa is mostly a gentle downhill ride. Kawakawa to Kaikohe is more incline but lots of flat riding with an easy rise up to the end in Kaikohe.    You will cycle over suspension bridges, pass a waterfall, through forest and working farm scenery.

Kaikohe airport which you ride past as you approach the town often has gliders and microlight aircraft as well as model planes sometimes putting in an appearance.
